As always, we have a list of newly featured preorders, current social media content available and titles we're currently blocking across our sites, too.

Three Upcoming Splash Pages ⏺️
We have three splash pages going up across your websites over the next few days. The first promotes the amazing Jack White that has worked super hard to engage indie retail with selling tools, posters, a stand-up and this cool video about the making of the Indie variant. We also have social sharing tools for Jack White with the cool video linked below. We also have many releases at your store site: https:// [your store]/SocialFeatures
Second up we have the latest from Kurt Vile, which is out this Friday and will run through the weekend. We have an animated album cover for Kurt and we believe this will be a strong title for you. (Watch My Moves) is Vile's first album in partnership with Verve Records, which pulls his talents as a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer in unexpected directions — and the result is a vibrant, yet meditative record propelled by laid-back charm and curious spirit.
The Kurt Vile (Watch My Moves) splash page will run from Friday, April 15 through Sunday, April 17.
Then on Tuesday, we'll begin promoting Get on Board from Taj Mahal and Ry Cooder via splash page.
Nearly sixty years after they first played together, Ry Cooder and Taj Mahal, longtime friends and collaborators, reunite with an album of music from two Piedmont blues masters who have inspired them all their lives: Get On Board: The Songs Of Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee. With Taj Mahal on vocals, harmonica, guitar, and piano and Cooder on vocals, guitar, mandolin, and banjo-joined by Joachim Cooder on drums and bass-the duo recorded eleven songs drawn from recordings and live performances by Terry and McGhee, who they both first heard as teenagers in California.
The Taj Mahal & Ry Cooder Get on Board splash page will run from Tuesday, April 19 through Thursday, April 21.

Bringing you some bite-sized training morsels for your busy life...
Since we have splash pages currently running, we'll replay this Clinic.
RSD Procedures ✍️
Please note that this year online sales for Record Store Day will return to a similar timeline to pre-pandemic days - 24 hours after RSD.
This means you can begin selling RSD titles beginning at 8 a.m. EST on Sunday, April 24. This means you must wait until at least then to upload/edit your RSD inventory.
For Alliance, this time around, we are waiting until
Monday MORNING, April 25, at 10 EST
to release our AEC remaining inventory feed.
This will allow hourly updates Monday morning. We think these quantities will be more reliable. Some stores may wish to turn ON auto submit for this day. This is global for everyone.
*stores still blocking RSD products can keep them blocked. Once RSD is unblocked AEC unblocking comes with it after Monday morning
• For stores that do dataloads/uploads with us, we are not stopping any dataloads for non-RSD products at any time
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
As always, we're here to help next week and throughout the weekend. Should anything arise, don't hesitate to reach out!
